Swedish Literature Weeks

ALL EVENTS FROM 12/3/2020 ON CANCELLED

This spring brings an event centred on Swedish culture and literature. Karin Bojs, a Swedish journalist (My European Family: The First 54,000 Years), will pay Prague a visit, and so will Niklas Natt och Dag (1793), an author of historical crime thrillers. Evald cinema will screen two movies (Becoming Astrid, Glowing Stars), and should you want to test yourselves in your knowledge about Swedish Culture, there will also be a pub quiz. On the top of that, we will organise an adventurous game for children and a workshop for publishers

Karin Bojs will also visit Brno. Other events in this city will be a screening of Becoming Astrid and a pub quiz. Finally, a unique event, Eat&Read Swedish, will take place.

A brochure about contemporary Swedish literature will be distributed during the festival.
